• Graveyard Fields Overlook and Hike - Canton, North Carolina

      Three waterfalls in easy hiking distance from the Graveyard Fields overlook make this a popular place to hike. The lower falls is the most spectacular but hiking to the upper falls affords beautiful views since past forest fires burned most of the taller trees and vegetation is shorter away from the creek bed.

      If you go:
      MM 418.8 is about an hour south of Asheville in the Pishgah District of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The loop is about 2.3 miles with restrooms at the overlook.
